* {{Troperrific}}: It's only natural that a show about TV trivia with the world's biggest fanboy as host and parodies of nearly every game show in the book is going to fall under this category.

* SpecialGuest: ''TheNewlywedGame'' and ''CardSharks'' host Bob Eubanks paid a visit to the show in Season 2, ostensibly to give Ken some pointers on how to host. The episode is especially hilarious for when one of the contestants began heckling Bob ("You got your own show - let Ken do his business here!"), and [[WhatTheHellPlayer Bob responds in kind]] ("Don't let your mouth write a check your butt can't cash!") The SpeedRound then consisted of one word from a TV show's title being replaced with "Whoopie", and the contestants having to supply the correct word.
